hmm...so I should probably drop the idea unless I win the lottery! The pair I saw on ebay went for £250! missed out on a real bargain there.
I've got HIDs in my reflectors like some here but they look much better in projectors - which I will have to ignore. I have seen some civics with HIDs in reflectors and they look good...unsure if this is stock.
In regards to HID life, i think it's a real gamble on the ebay ones. mine are standard H7 and have lasted 3 months so far no problems, two of my friends got them from and the ballasts failed pretty quickly, within weeks!
Guess I better keep looking/give up!
